of government and perhaps most important, all the think tanks, all those apparatuses sicko amount shaping how we think about the problems of the world, wickets in the media and newspaper. so that is how we'll normalize. the great fear of george lookout years ago called for shaping of common sense or what becomes the commonsense notion is that a neutral matter. it doesn't just flow out of the air. a lot of time and effort is spent by people who run the society to shape the common sense notion. and so i think we have a politics that has adjusted to our economic system as he should have expected it to do all along. those folks will not permit as much as they can, they are not going to permit the political system to undo the results of economic system with which they are quite pleased. as long as that happens, you, i am the american people in general going to confront a political system very nicely articulated to oscillate between two parties were differences, but whose differences are not about the basic economic system and neither has the slightest interest in debating that, let alone fundamentall
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. and i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region -- including egypt, tunisia and yemen -- have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities, and called for calm. and so have religious authorities around the globe. but understand, the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. they are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded -- the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully, that diplomacy can take the place of war, that in an interdependent world, all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy, or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. if we are se

a government representative rather than just direct my%. host: girls age 14 can get birth control at new york's schools. that's one story you probably have heard about. and in the "new york times this morning, there's this in their national section -- they are frustrated with mayor rahm emanuel. in florida, a democratic caller, good morning. caller: thanks for taking my call. good morning. the u.n. was created, basically, to undermine the united states. they tried at first with the league of nations. people in our government back then would not accept it. so then they came back with fdr with the united nations. he was progressive and he jumped right into it. if you just look, nobody in the un is our friend, hardly anybody. it was basically created to undermine the united states. host: what about japan, the united kingdom, france, spain, mexico? caller: i think mexico was complicity with the gunrunning thing and mexico is not really our friend at. japan, i don't know. but for the most part, everything out that the united states wants to do usually gets voted down by china and russia, who are a
flourish and do well and prevent the government from regulating of stifling job creation and continue to do that. privacy is a logical spacehab the data security will continue on we continue to look at bringing more minute factoring jobs back. >> mary bono mac, this is the communicators on c-span. we underestimate how much we forget of our own ideas. we are just terrible. it is an idea is this kind of homage this fleeting sense of something interesting and it kind of this appears so one of the things i found people doing and i try to do it as well as to write everything down but to keep everything together don't overorganize your notes and put them off into folders and things like that to allow the collisions to happen between your ideas but it's to go back the embrey read all those notes and go back and look at the notes from six years ago, and revisit that kind of self past and all of the ideas that he or she had. that is what place was like for the great land of the enlightenment. they would stitch together passages from the books they read it they would write their ow
groups held in the government controlled capital of damascus in an attempt at a gathering to position itself as an alternative to the armed rebels, citing the internal opposition on the syrian to cater. who are these people and what do you make of what they are saying? >> that's a good question. many fault lines in the syrian opposition. differences between the exiled syrian opposition a set of s-sierra, those fighting and dying on the ground in syria and those who are little more religious commission may come a arab opposition and those that are more secular opposition. and then you have those calling for the overthrow of the regime and those that are still blind to negotiate with the regime. there's been an attempt by outside powers, all these different groups of rebel forces to try to find a coherent center that can bring everything together in a coordinated way against the regime that would also draw outside support more readily as well as those fence sitters in the syrian population who don't necessarily support bashar al-assad regime, they don't see any viable alternative yet. o
government red tape is putting our country at a competitive disadvantage. plus, president obama gets a boost in the polls. the romney camp plays down expectations for next week's debate. some predictions. welcome to "the willis report." but, everybody. i'm lori rothman in for gerri willis perry the recovery is flat lining. the jobless rate has been about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thi
protect its in my pocket. this is the government basically being a moderate. they get to do it legally and there is not all lot you can do to stop them. lori: remind me what tax reform should look like. >> we ought to be taxing consumption instead of productivity. the things that make an economy strong our work, savings, investment. those are things that make us stronger. we penalize the very things that are productive. we ought to be rewarding people are working and saving and investing because they're helping the economy to grow. that is why i am a fairfax -- fair tax supporter which would create a very different model. it is changing the foundation. lori: at the end of the day you need economic growth to be supportive of tax rates, and we are just come as you said, flat line at 1%. a revision, a downward revision. you know, hell are we going to get the overall growth rate higher? do we have to wait? obviously the election is so near, but are we just putting too much hope on to washington right now and not enough on good old fashion innovation and ingenuity? >> ingenuity and in this
follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on its own without clearing anything with the united states. this sounds to me like an ultimatum. is that what it was? was a governnt of israel giving us an ultimatum? was that wise? >> look, israel was in my portfolio. i have traveled there 13 times. i have had hundreds of meetings with israeli officials. we are in lock step with them on how far iran is toward getting a nuclear weapon capability. we are in step with them on the objective of preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. they do not have the same military capability of the united states has. they do not believe they can wait as long as we can. we need to work together to align our clocks. president netanyahu is expressing concerns. the president shares those concerns. it is a huge threat to israel and the interest of the united states. this president has made clear that all options will be considered to address that. the current israeli government would like the u.s
of the highest. >> many of these workers face redundancy. the government says growth will return next year. others say the government has missed an opportunity to reduce state spending and make it easier to hire and fire workers. today's budget hearing reflects a deeper unresolved problem with the eurozone. as we have seen, other countries like spain and greece have been struggling to reduce spending even while their economies are weak or in recession. >> and other things europeans might envy in brazil, they have so much money in the government that response to the slowdown is a stimulus package that has been announced. in other news, ahead of britain posting a financial watchdog has announced a reform to the setting of libor, the benchmark interest rate. the review was commissioned after a fine was imposed on barclays for trying to rig the rate. now to nepal where a plane has crashed killing all 19 people on board. the aircraft caught fire within two minutes before taking off. it is the second fatal accident this year and once again the country's safety record is in the spotlight. >> a jo
monitoring the content of conversations they tell us. that is the government is keeping tabs on to whom people are talking but not what they are saying still an aclu representative says a rise in surveillance is some cause for concern. >> the people have a right to know how these extremely invasive surveillance powers are being used and if there is nothing to hide, if they're not being abused where is the harm in letting us know. >> shepard: federal judge authorized every instance of surveillance and a smokesmanned as as criminals use more and new sophisticated technology the use of orders issued by a judge and explicitly authorized by congress to obtain non-content information is simply for federal law enforcement officials to carry out their duties to protect the public and investigate violations of federal law. we knew about the death of a u.s. border agent. now there is a new report that indicates guns linked to operation fast and furious may have been involved in more killings. and we're getting word just how young some of those victims are said to have been. a live report is next.
, but apparently we are going to cover it. >> before we get to that, the government of hollande is about to present it first budget. its expected to whicheverdelives of tax hikes. meantime european policymakers are appraising spain's reform plan. but today the government must brace for the results of the banking stress tests that will determine the recapitalization needs of the country's most troubled lenders. we have steve sedgwick following the story in thmadrid, but firs out to stefane in paris. it sounds like there will be a contrast with the spanish budget. it's tax hikes that seem to be the focus. >> in france it will be focus on tax hikes. that's the decision about to be announced by the french government. basically 20 billion euros in additional taxes in the budget for the next year. and only 10 billion euros in spending cuts. that's the plan to reach the deficit target. that's the best case scenario because the budget is based on a growth assumption of 0.8% which seems to be far too optimistic. plenty of private economists believe the french economy won't grow more than 0.3% next year. in
they need nearly 60 billion euros more to expand the shock. the same time, the spanish government has said that the extra aid would push its budget deficit 7.4% of gdp in 2012, which is above the eu's target. so i don't know how she moves around so quickly from place to place, but from athens to madrid, here is julia. >> thanks very much, ross. you just have to bear with me if i make another freudian slip on greece versus spain. but right now, what we heard from the government over the weekend was that their deficit will be on target at 6.3%. but if you include the bank aid as you mentioned, 7.4%. they did make great pains to point out that european commission officials have not asked them to make any adjustments to reduce that number, but the question has to be asked what happens if they don't meet the deficit target of 6.3%. many analysts are expecting them to come in around 7% in terms of the target for this year. day take last week actually showed that the central government deficit came in just around 4.3% up to august. how, the full year target is 4.5% and then we're not even bringin
-- no one thinks that israel is about drop a bomb on tehran. so the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror, and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, there would be two dangers. even if you believe they would never use it, that is, if you believe that they are sane and rational and understand that their country, their civilization, their whole history, would be destroyed if they ever dropped a bomb on someone because everybody would know it, and the retaliation would be incomprehensible, even if you believe that, two bad things will happen if they get a bomb. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. and the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you've got, the more vulnerable they are to being stolen or sold or simply transferred to terrorists and that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't directly sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get a girl scout cookie's worth of fissile mate
of europe. france's new socialist government unveiling plans for a 75% super tax. stuart varney host of "varney & company", fox business network. glad you're happy you left 35 years ago. what's up? >> germany is telling france hey, you got to get that budget deficit under control, big budget deficit is verboten the socialist president of france, francois hollande, tax the rich, not so rich, capital gains, profits, you name it, there will be a big new tax. on upper end of income every dollar over a certain level the french government will take 75 cents. rip it right out of your hand. 75 cents on the dollar. more than $200,000, they take 45 cents on the dollar, almost half. bill, this is a massive gamble because france's economy is dead flat, teetering on recession. 10-year high for unemployment and france puts in place huge tax increases. bill: i'm reading the two measures bringing around half a billion euros. >> that's it. >> what will that do for them? >> not much. there are other taxes as well which will bring in a total they think of 20 billion euros. bill: higher tax rates on div
in government positions. in matters that in 1972 you were having problems. several places have challenged this. they are part of a part from 1965. they wanted a change. they were in the process of challenging its. . they change their mind and decided to allow this as they were getting up to the proper level to appeal. they have nonetheless petition for a review. that had the vehicle problem because of that. the main case will be the alabama case. shelby county did not ask for pre clearance. sh she basically said this is not fair. they are criticizing the use of section 5 in this case. this is the most likely case to be taking. there is also a couple of cases that are coming up. i mentioned the texas voter identification case. the redistricting has been working on a a year and more of things. this is a lesson in how challenging it is. south carolina enacted one at the same time. this is incredibly costly and time-consuming to do this. the court has suggested that kennedy made an earlier decision i think they tip their hands a little bit in the unanimous decision that came out this week called a
